Advanced V2X application scenarios for collision-free driving tested by NXP & partners
06 October 2021
NXP & partners to present V2X-enabled prototypes at world’s largest event for smart mobility & digitalisation of transportation, ITS World Congress, from 11-15 October in Hamburg – including a smart V2X-enabled e-bike prototype from premium manufacturer, Riese & Müller. V2X electronics can help protect bikes & other road users from accidents. NXP has also released a new applications processor for advanced V2X & IIoT applications.
Automotive-focused semiconductor manufacturer, NXP® Semiconductors has announced that it will showcase new safety scenarios enabled by vehicle-to-vehicle communication (vehicle-to-X or V2X) as part of this year’s ITS World Congress (in Hamburg, from 11-15 October), the world’s largest event for smart mobility & the digitalisation of transportation. NXP will work together with partners such as premium bicycle & e-bike manufacturer, Riese & Müller to highlight better protection for vulnerable road users, new V2X application scenarios designed to help prevent traffic accidents and e-bike safety demonstrations.
NXP's V2X technology is based on 802.11p, a communication standard also known as DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communication). Optimised for automobiles, 802.11p allows vehicles, road infrastructure and other road users to exchange information in real time.
Every year, more than 1.3 million people are killed in road accidents across the world and more than 50% of the fatalities are cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Technologies such as V2X and ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) can make a significant contribution to help reduce these numbers and are already in standard use in selected passenger car models today.
To demonstrate how the safety of road users can be enhanced, NXP and Riese & Müller have built a smart electric bicycle prototype. The demonstration combines NXP’s RoadLINK® automotive-qualified DSRC modem and Hardware Secure Element IC for V2X applications, with Cohda Wireless’ On–Board Unit. The configuration enables the e-bike to transmit data on its position, speed and direction of travel to other V2X-enabled vehicles in the vicinity that could pose a potential danger to the cyclist. The module calculates the distances between road users and position changes within seconds. In the event of a dangerous situation, both the cyclist and a car’s driver, would receive a timely collision warning.
"Everyone on the road deserves to be safe, from the student on a bike to the road worker and those in premium vehicles. The quest starts with allowing vehicles and road users to communicate in real time and V2X meets this need by linking infrastructure and road users,” said Huanyu Gu, Senior Product Marketing Manager ADAS at NXP. “V2X can connect and inform a vast web of e-bikes, e-scooters, breakdown assist vehicles and even construction site lighting to create a web of safety for all who share the roads."
Additional V2X product news
To drive the expansion of the V2X ecosystem, NXP has also announced the next step in innovation – the launch of its new i.MX 8XLite applications processor. The product is targeted at secure V2X, as well as IIoT applications, and is capable of simultaneously handling highly complex cryptography and telematics data.
